Manage Send As Permissions for Mail-Enabled Public Folders

Exchange 2010
 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2010 SP3, Exchange Server 2010 SP2

Topic Last Modified: 2011-03-19

Use the Send As permission to configure a mail-enabled public folder so that users other than the public folder owner can use that mail-enabled public folder to send messages.

The Send As permission isn't granted until after replication has occurred. Replication times depend on your Exchange and network configuration. To grant the permission immediately, stop and then restart the Microsoft Exchange Information Store service.

Also, before you perform this procedure, be aware that you cannot send e-mail messages on behalf of a mail-enabled public folder if the folder is hidden from address lists. When sending a message, Exchange requires that an e-mail address is resolved in the From field. In the case where a message is sent on behalf of a mail-enabled public folder that is hidden from address lists, , the SMTP address is interpreted as an address that is not from your organization (known as a foreign address) and is rejected. For more information about how to change public folder settings, see Configure Public Folder Properties.

In Outlook, users will receive the following errors when attempting to send a message on behalf of a mailbox that is hidden from address lists:

  • Online mode   When users press Send, they will receive the following error: "You do not have permission to send on behalf of the specified user."

  • Cached Exchange Mode   Outlook initially sends the message, but users will receive a non-delivery report (NDR) containing the following message: "You are not allowed to send this message because you are trying to send on behalf of another user without permission to do so. Please verify that you are sending on behalf of the correct sender, or ask your system administrator to help you get the required permission."

You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure. To see what permissions you need, see the "Send As permissions" entry in the Mailbox Permissions topic.

  4. In the result pane, select the public folder, and then, in the action pane, click Manage Send As Permission.

  5. On the Manage Send As Permission page, select the users or groups to which you want to grant the Send As permission or from which you want to remove the permission.

    • A status of Completed indicates that the wizard completed the task successfully.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure. To see what permissions you need, see the "Send As permissions" entry in the Mailbox Permissions topic.

Use the Add-ADPermission cmdlet to manage Send As permissions for a mail-enabled public folder. When you use the Add-ADPermission cmdlet, you must specify the name of the public folder on which the Send As permission should be added and the public folder that should be granted the permission. Because the Add-ADPermission cmdlet controls many permissions, you must also specify the Send As permission with the ExtendedRights parameter. For example, to add the Send As permission to contoso\kim on the public folder Sales, use the following command:

Add-ADPermission Sales -User contoso\kim -Extendedrights "Send As"
